Assistant Professors Mohamad Darwiche, Ahmed Salem
The Mechanical Engineering undergraduate program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,
The Mechanical Engineering Department is devoted to educating exemplary mechanical engineers by instituting best learning practices that drive knowledge, build skills and competencies, inspire learners to define a purpose, develop a passion to forever learn, cultivate a sense of responsibility toward the profession, society and environment, and attain the ability to confront challenges, and in so doing contribute to the advancement of the community.

The educational objectives of the ME program are determined to support career advancement of the graduates and as they pursue their career goals, the graduates will:

1. demonstrate competency in providing professional solutions in Mechanical Engineering through integration of analytical, experimental, and computer knowledge.

2. demonstrate ability to pursue graduate studies in mechanical engineering and related multidisciplinary areas.

3. demonstrate professional leadership in their fields of expertise and service to local and international communities.

Upon completion of the program graduates shall be able to:

a. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering

b. an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data

c. an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability

d. an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams

e. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

f. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

g. an ability to communicate effectively

h. the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context

i. a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning

j. a knowledge of contemporary issues

k. an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice

The undergraduate curriculum for the degree of Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering consists of 150 credit-hours of course work + IC3 + 30 credits transferred from Lebanese Baccalaureate or equivalent.
Mechanical engineers attain a broad spectrum of skills sought by almost every profession. Industries, enterprises, and service providers requiring mechanical engineering skills include: power generation and distribution, building and construction, medicine and pharmacology, aerospace, automotive, food, process, security, computers and electronics, renewable energy, consulting, entertainment, water resources, sports, environmental institutions, and government. Most importantly, you can imagine something that never was and make it a reality! There is so much work to be done to guarantee the future of mankind and mechanical engineers can tap the possibilities through the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurism.
